Ratings and Reviews
Awesome single player solitaire game!
I bought this specifically to play solo, and I love it! Easy to learn, and it’s perfect for mobile because each game only lasts a few minutes. And even though luck is involved, you do have to plan and strategize. It’s not too easy or too hard, and it keeps me coming back for more.
Thank you, developers, for pricing it fairly, up front, with no IAP.
It works well on my XS Max on iOS 13, even though it hasn’t been updated in two years, which is why I docked it one star, because for the premium price it should be updated once a year to keep up with the current iOS. I do hope they at least keep it running as time goes on, because this is indeed a clever concept and more fun to me than most other solitaire games I’ve played. I’m glad I bought it!
I can’t put it down!
I was intrigued when I saw in the app description that this app was voiceover friendly. I am legally blind and have not been able to play the physical version this game as easily as I used to be able to. Playing on a tablet enables me to zoom in on card numbers. When I tested this game with my screen reader, I was expecting the buttons to be read, and maybe my cards. But I was astonished when my screen reader read EVERYTHING, including the lanes and the opponents plays, moves and scoring! I could play this game in the dark, which is to say, when my eye is in a lot of pain, I can still play because I don’t have to strain to look at the screen. Thank you so much for making this game truly and completely accessible. ONLY suggestion for the app itself would be to include a pass and play option.
Good game, but app badge notifications are iffy
I really like this game, but often the app badge notifications get...confused?...when iOS updates come out. Usually the badge just doesn't clear when I've taken my turn, but right now it is straight up backwards. The notification disappears when it's my turn, and stays on when it isn't. Luckily, I play another game with the same friend and we both tend to take our turns in the games at the same time, so I rely on that game's app badge to let me know when it's my turn in Lost Cities.
A minor bug to be sure, but still an annoyance in an otherwise wonderful and very enjoyable app.
